Today I cannot start PostgreSQL and return with following error message


-bash-4.1$ pgl_ctl start -o "-p 5437"
-bash: pgl_ctl: command not found
-bash-4.1$ pg_ctl start
server starting
-bash-4.1$ postgres cannot access the server configuration file "/opt/PostgreSQL/9.2/data/:/opt/PostgreSQL/9.2/data/postgresql.conf": No such file or directory

-bash-4.1$

then after changing some permission, now I get this error below

-bash-4.1$ pg_ctl start -D /opt/PostgreSQL/9.2/data
server starting
-bash-4.1$ 2013-06-13 17:49:42 MYT FATAL:  data directory "/opt/PostgreSQL/9.2/data" has group or world access
2013-06-13 17:49:42 MYT DETAIL:  Permissions should be u=rwx (0700).
